The Farm Tour occurs every October, and is organized by New Leaf Market. This year's tour, the fifth annual, will take place on October 20 & 21, 2012.

Take advantage of this once-a-year event. Thirty-one farms in North Florida and South Georgia are opening their doors and inviting you to come see local farms in action. Each farm is offering something special for no charge. Families can enjoy tours that include barnyard animals, fresh-baked goods and refreshments. You can attend a workshop on beekeeping, see community gardening in action, or talk to farmers who are committed to organic production. Visit working cattle and goat ranches, a dairy or a winery. And of course, purchase amazingly fresh goods directly from the farm. For details about the tour, including a comprehensive brochure with maps, visit
